My ten cents... I would argue it's off topic, the topic here is distant worlds is in the top 10 on steam, sure the discussion has to do with steam but the topic is how DW is doing on steam not the merits of steam. If you want to question the merits of steam why not make a thread specifically for that?


Because the discussion has evolved and thereby incorporated Steam (as a source of purchasing DW:U) into the thread. I could argue that arguing about it is off-topic but that could be considered as being off-topic.

If I buy,


Steam gets around this by not selling you anything. It's all a rental and subject to their control. You have no rights period.

Which is another reason not to use it.

Steam threads always end up like this.

And to clarify, I'm glad that Steam is there for people that want to use it. It's just not for me.

No it's not. Both sides of the debate can do what they want. Nobody is forcing anybody either way.

By all means continue then. I'll go the play the game.



Ice has a point. Who cares which side you fall on?

Let's see some screenshots and let's talk shop! Anyone have any awesome moments to share? Anyone been selling all of their friends on this game? I've finally been able to convince a few of my buddies to buy it. They're (like I knew they would) loving it.

I bought and upgraded my game on matrix and activated that on steam I then purchased a new copy in steam and gave my friend the game. I bought the second copy directly through steam because of how easy it is to gift there rather than directly through matrix which is more complicated to gift through.

From the Steam EULA:

the consumer protection laws of your country shall prevail


and

quote:

In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remaining portions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect
<-- The above is itself unenforceable.
